Add comment on:Housing is not just another commodity
by Friedhelm Hengsbach
Like food, clothing, health, and education, housing is an elementary need. One's apartment is a place of retreat of the private person, a protective- and creative space of inviolable identity, the third skin of the human person after clothing. Low-interest long-term housing tax credits, SROs, and nonprofit or cooperative housing are alternatives to indifference, market fundamentalism, and plutocracy.
